poor poor man's iphone

It's probably better made than the Iphone - I've repaired 2 iphones in the past 2 weeks, both were dropped once and the screen smashed to bits, whereas my XDA Orbit has been drowned, dropped and sat upon and still works after 4 years.

LOLL best comment i've ever seen

Mains charger might be a problem? 2 flat pins?

That is brilliant. 'Phone 4.'

I can't help but wonder about the apps shown on the box-art.

does this thing have wifi connectivity?

I would be wary to buy any of these unknown brand mobiles.....we all know that european regulations dictate that an mobile being sold should not be greater than a defined SAR content which is a radiation.....above set limit would damage your brain, tissue or anything.....
I would not touch them with a barge pole.....
I wont bother to shell out a few more quids to get a certified known mobile phone than this one.
I am not saying to buy an iphone instead but definitely would not recommend thsi phone to anyone.
Have not voted though.

There all made in the same place mainly China.

These are pretty awful especially compared to a mainstream branded touchphone, BUT given the price it's hot, just beware, the screen will be very bellow par, & the battery life is awful (so much so, they generally supply 2 batteries in the box) if you ever bought a cheap Chinese mp3 player, then you'll know what to expect IMO, it's easily worth the money, just don't expect much from it....

Yes, I have ordered from them.

You would use a "shaver" adapter.

No.

No, not 3G.

Poor poor mans iPhone? Terrible touch screen? App availability?

It's 39 quid. What are people expecting? A Vertu?

Price - Excellent
Phone - Crap
Comment - Priceless

I wouldn't recommend buying these phones.They have all of these 'features' but they none of them work that well. I would suggest just buying a regular non-touchscreen phone over a crappy touchscreen phone if you're looking at the less-than-£100 mark.

Excellent review, watch this before you vote comrades

all these phones are from china,known as china version phones,they are not 3g sim,only 2g sim,but you can use two sims in single phone,one on standbye,they are just imitation,they do work and the more expensive ones are very good for prices but most will never be 3g sim so be aware of that!this is a very poor version so try going to the website and finding a better one for good price,or try DH gate for anything,is best asian seller site and very safe to use with paypal.

China is a big place....or did you mean they are all made in the same factory,which is not true ?Clothing made in china can be rubbish or excellent, depending on quality control,so the warning might be sensible ?

This looks nasty!

Didn't I read somewhere that the iPhone is also made in China?

Resolution 640*480 the resolution is pretty good :O

The claimed resolution is almost certainly a lie.....

why do people assume because its made in the same country it will be as good ?

are Honda Civics the same quality as a Rover ??

Dont tell me you'renot born and brought up in a developed country like UK.
if a goods is manufactured in the UK that has to be good....because govt make sure that their policies are imposed on the companies hence why that credibility. That credibility is why anything made in the UK has got that brand name all over the world.
China may be having the policies but not being strictly imposed. That means, an iphone manufactured in this country to the normal phone would have same difference as a Lamborghini car and Rover car......
I am sorry but your perception of as i phone was mnaufactured in China any other phones manufactured there will have same standard. Forget about the same standard but there is no guarantee that these cell phones are HEALTH SAFE to use. The fact that many people are ignorant about. There have been cases where the chinese make models got exploded causing injuries/death.....google a bit more and the picture will be evident to you.

You obviously shouldnt be buying expensive things if your clumsy enough to drop them so often.

gotta agree with his views, this is some rushed out **** from hong kong (possibly mainland china or korea if you're lucky). at the end of the day, it's better to pay a bit more for a phone that's been developed, with necessary investment and eye to customer safety and satisfaction, once rather than these cheapo imitations that will only serve to infuriate you and your bank manager and then buy the real mccoy later. As well as this it'll make you look well cheap given that most people nowadays will be able to work out it's a lemon as soon as they touch the 'touchscreen'.

china phones is the term any company selling from china will call there phones it means there version or replica or genuine product,i know china is big place and never mentioned once about being constructed or assembled in same warehouse,like i said in post if
anyone wanting to try these types of phone then shop on DH GATE,is safe and if you dont like product you can get full refund,if you like products then they release money to seller via paypal,ur money is always safe and protected,this phone mentioned here is absolute crap mind,but pay around $120/200 an you will get a genuine good product up there with most androids or smart phones fact!!and most phones from china come with more options than western phones,just need check that you get what product you see in pics,use alibaba or DH GATE
